Accion Press Modelismo is back with a rather spectacular issue. This issue covers two warriors from the Battle of Kursk - the Ju 87G-1 Stuka and the Il-2m Shturmovik, both tank killers. This title covers in-depth builds from two master builders using the Hasegawa 1/32 Ju 87G kit and the Eduard (Accurate Miniatures) 1/48 Il-2m kit. Each builder takes you through the step-by-step process from initial assemblies to final weathering and each provide some interesting concepts as well as techniques for weathering without overdoing the job.
I like the insights from the builders as they tackled each problem and show how to achieve the same results, such as fixing the wing fit problems of the Hasegawa kit. No time is wasted talking bad about the kits, rather they show how to apply modeling techniques to turn the kit into a master model.
This series is worth collecting for any modeler as the basic modeler can pick up a wealth of tips and techniques you won't find in many places while the advanced modeler will also see some alternative approaches to different problems which will also improve our results.
My sincere thanks to Accion Press for this review sample!
